[prMac.com] New York, New York - Developer Dr Robert Belluso's first game, Little Bird combines current technology, exotic landscapes, objects, and contraptions, allowing the player to interact with the game in ways they've never seen before! Unlike games that rely on tapping, sliding or swiping, Little Bird 1.0 takes advantage of the latest iPhone technology. The user tilts the device to the right or left, using gravity and speed to build momentum to get through each level.
Before long you will be rolling, jumping, bouncing, flying through the air, swinging in baskets, riding in carts, and shooting out of cannons while avoiding obstacles, booby traps and enemies to help Little Bird collect coins along the path to safety.
"Little Bird brings the simple idea of a real skill arcade game, from which the concept was born, to the next level," explains Dr. Belluso, the App's creator. "Little Bird offers a fun, challenging and unique experience that will keep gamers coming back for more. It's a novel, gravity driven game played with challenging physics-based obstacle courses.
Although developed initially for iPhone, Little Bird is a universal App available on all devices. It combines accelerometer and gyroscope gaming technologies and features 20 unique levels with future levels coming and frequent updates.
Little Bird is rated 4+ (suitable for ages 4 and older). Gamers who enjoy Angry Birds, Feed That Dragon, Where's My Water, Hank Hazard, Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope and Bike Baron will very much feel at home with Little Bird.
